The problem is with NCurses (even 1.9.0c).  Until someone is able to 
compile it to run well on NetBSD, you'll have to use normal curses.

NcFTP is up to version 1.9.4 now.  You can get the source at

Also, you might want to dump Term in favor of SLiRP.  SLiRP is a sort of 
combination of TIA and Term - it provides a psudeo-(C)SLIP link, as well 
as port redirection.  And best of all, it is based on the BSD 4.4 
networking code!  =)  And you do not have to "Termify" software - since 
it provides an almost real SLIP connection, software like NcFTP will work 
right out of the box.  

You can get SLiRP at
